    Posted my question in another thread but not getting any replies so I'll try it here.
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/full-vwii-softmod.339899/

    I'm preparing the SD card following this guide ^ and at the usb loader part I'm not sure which I'm supposed to use? I'm guessing its IOS 249.dol but better double check with the pros.B-)
    https://code.google.com/p/usbloader-gui/downloads/list Also at the d2x cIOS part, the download only gives you one option which is the d2x-v10-beta53-alt-vwii, is that the best one to use?

    • beta52 - Has better support for NAND emulation (eg. loading Virtual Console/WiiWare from a virtual NAND), but handles only 1 USB port (so try both) and lacks support for plug-and-play (USB needs to be connected before starting the USB loader)
    • beta53-alt - Worse for NAND emulation, but does support plug-and-play and both USB ports.

    I can live with the one usb, so I'll go beta52. Any idea what I'm supposed to get from the usb loader link?

    Well, first you would need to decide which one you want to use (USB Loader GX vs Configurable USB Loader vs Wiiflow - I'd stick with USB Loader GX or Neogamma works too if you don't want anything fancy and just want to play games from USB).
    As for getting a download your best bet is looking in http://filetrip.net/
    Neogamma loader (Homebrew Channel)
    Neogamma Channel Forwarder (needs above download)(optional)
    USB Loader GX (Homebrew Channel)
    USB Loader GX Forwarder (needs above download)(optional)

    Bit of a problem , was using the dump mii nand tool and it was taking a long time for it to finish. I fell asleep while it was finishing up ( was at 1024/4097 ) and when I turn on the tv the next day it's back on the wiiu home menu. Did the wiiu just turn it self off after a while? how can I see if everything was successful? Should I do another backup? - Got that solved :)

    Also homebrew channel now runs with black bars on the side, before the restart It was full screen, anyway to fix that?

    New problem! Can't install d2x-v10-beta52-vwii, doesn't show up on the dx cIOS installer , only option going right is d2x v6? I have it setup as \apps\d2x-cios-installer mod v2.2\d2x-v10-beta52-vWii, tried it without the folder, nothing. Also accidentally pressed A right after the remote turned on and it tried to install some IOS ( 37 something ) but failed.

    You need to install Joostinonline's forwarder to fix that, on the forums and easily found.

    Thanks! I'll look into it!

    Still need help with the cIOS installer, I'll try the alt version tomorrow.
